This is a compressor, but the gate and limiter are more practical.

UTILIZATION

Very easy to use, light switch practices. Note the notched Knob, which limit the sharpness of tuning (but at that price ...)

SOUND QUALITY

I did that for some time, and have not yet had the opportunity to really use it. However I tested it, and it is clear he is far from transparent.

A big worry to report: the simple act of connecting one output to the console and electrically connected sends a significant buzz in the sound! Even MDX2200 off!
This behavior is intolerable for me (ds compressor is connected to a rack and console permanently powered), I sought a solution. The outsourcing of the transformer power supply solved the problem. I do not think it's a problem but to wave interference between the sector (or ground) and output amplifiers on the MDX. The fact is that leaving the transformer to the buzz disappeared.

This buzz of power supply removed, bypassed nothing to say, but once you activate the channel, you'd almost turn an equation!
As Lenoir said in its opinion, it is not the tool's home studio demanding.
Anyway, in my case, for the price and use that I'll have (voice evening entertainment) are not killed.

OVERALL OPINION

For the price (especially used), it is a good device, with gate and practice independent limiters (minimum, but it helps out).
Live, where to bcp channel dynamics processor that can be fitted neatly enough for a small budget.
But I think his lack of transparency makes it unusable for complex signals, and also monitor instru serious impact because the color in my opinion much lower frequencies.
